During the COVID-19 lockdown period, the leading Italian mosaic firm Fantini Mosaici invited a selected number of long-term UAE residents to participate in a charity design initiative. Based in Milan, the family-owned Fantini Mosaici has been operating in the UAE for almost 15 years and its new project is supported by the Embassy of Italy to the United Arab Emirates.

CHARITY DONATION – UAE RED CRESCENT AUTHORITY
The entire revenue from the proceeds will be donated to the UAE Red Crescent Authority. Headed by their Highnesses Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, the charity is recognized by the International Federation of Red Crescent and Red Cross. The Authority provides domestic and international aid assistance and various humanitarian assistance for the vulnerable, the needy and victims of accidents and disasters. It is currently involved with aid programs to support the people of Lebanon.

DESIGN PROCESS
Coming from all walks of life, the 17 handpicked participants – including artists, sports personalities, journalists, photographers, designers and entrepreneurs – conceptualized the decoration for the tables.
In addition to the 17 tables designed by the participants, the Fantini Mosaici design studio created two tables; one inspired by the UAE flag, the other by the new UAE brand logo. Then, during the lockdown period, the mosaic artisans at the Fantini Mosaici ME headquarters in Abu Dhabi transformed the individual artworks into stunning mosaic patterns.
